i know win2ksp2 has an option where you can run the program with a win95 compatability layer but im not sure if they did that in xp. you can check by looking at the properties of your vgs shortcut.

Thank you ^_^ but still have another problem.

I've tried to adjust VGS shortcut in XP(as you said) and I found an option to make certain programs work like they did in previous version of windows (95,98,me,....)!! And I can run VGS on XP!!!
But...... VGS display this message "CVGS requires a Pentium II-class or later to run". My PC is Pentium4 1.5 GHz, you know.
Could anyone gice me an advice about this please. :~(
and Thank you very much for your information. ^__^

lgmcben : i've tried that method...vgs will run and crash afterward
m$ itself has said that compatibility mode is not for program that has been designated not to run in that os

aldo has a patch that could make VGS run on a P4...somewhat. it's iffy, but worth a try.

Re: Thank you ^_^ but still have another problem.

My friend tried the compatibility option in Windows 2000 but VGS still refused to run. He has a celeron so the processor isn't the problem. In short, I don't think there's any way to make the emulator work in NT. Maybe someday someone will make a patch that'll make it work.

You can't make VGS work in ANY NT-Based OS (including WinXP), and it's not likely you'll ever be able to. VGS needs to access the CD-ROM hardware directly, and the NT Kernel simply does not allow this.

I don't know about Connectix Virtual PC, but you can get VGS to work in VMWare (a similiar program). It's a little tricky (you'll need to use Daemon Tools instead of a real CD-ROM), and very slow, but it runs.

I was looking at the VMWare homepage and it seems like you have to install another OS anyway, so if you're going to do that, you mind as well just dual boot win2k with something else.

A much better solution I'd say. :)

I only meant to tell that the only way to get VGS working under Win2000/XP is (ironically) with an emulator. :)

If you right click on a shortcut and choose properties, there will be a tab called compatibilty, and you can make your change there. As far as I know this tab is only present for shortcuts.
